Pot Size: 1.5 litre
Description: From one of our collections gathered from the northern Andes at a heady altitude of 3,600m at El Cocuy, in the February of 2015. Where the silver-blue scale like fleshy leaves edged in red caught our attention, scattered around the scrubby grasses and strewn rocks. Forming attractive small rosettes only 10 cm across of overlapping foliage with one to several red scapes 20 cm long, reaching for the sky terminating in a spike of deep orange fleshy flowers fading to yellow at their tips. Easily grown in good light, possibly not in too hot a position due to its altitudinal provenance, in a well drained gritty soil, avoid over-feeding. Not tried for hardiness.
